Default Anyone else STILL waiting on SS samples?

I was originally really excited to see this new contest put together with Social Smoke, especially since the get together happened at their place. There have been a lot of good reviews, and I have been thinking about ordering from them, but their high price point, my current cash situation, and not wanting to be disappointed have prevented me from doing this.

Then the contest comes along, and there goes any matter of uncertainty. So back on the 7th I sent them an excited e-mail with all my information, requested flavors, and a thanks for supporting the HP community. I have yet to hear anything, and have not gotten the shipping confirmations many people got.

After a while I think that maybe my e-mail got lost in the deluge of e-mails they are probably getting, so I send another on the 19th. Still nada. I've seen lots of people get their first and even second packages, but nothing here.

Anyone else STILL waiting on anything from Social Smoke, or am I the only one??

They have been swamped with requests. PM them and see if you can get it figured out.

Honestly dude, I understand your frustration, I feel it myself, mine has taken a while too.

But keep in mind, they're sending you FREE tobacco. And not a crappy little plastic baggy full, they're sending you 300 grams of tobacco for FREE. That's about $33 worth of tobacco for round one, totally free of charge.

Gifthorse, meet mouth.

Seriously, send a PM or another email if you're concerned that your order got lost.

I expected this response, and it's not undue. I made this thread for two reasons, firstly to vent a bit, and secondly to see if I was really the only one having this issue, or if it is widespread.

Like I said earlier, I have been wanting to try their stuff, and this is a smart way for them to introduce their product into a fairly saturated market segment, especially since it is a relatively high cost option. The lack of other people replying with the same issue shows that my experience with them so far is not indicative of the company as a whole, which is what I was hoping for.

Give Social Smoke a break .. Hookah Pro is a VERY LARGE community and I am sure they are OVERWHELMED with requests!

If you do get some tobacco, I would consider yourself lucky, because you have to have been a Member since Dec 2009 in order to participate. But they are making exceptions for our most active and respectful Members that have signed up in 2010.

Thanks again Social Smoke for doing this Sorry to overwhelm you with so many requests!

Wow, I am apparently just thick. I had seen the 12/09 date multiple times in the SS contest details, and completely thought I had joined before then. I never though to second check it. Epic fail on my part.

Look at the HP contests forum, you'll see it. You might not be eligible but I'm sure there will be future HP events like this.


I'd jump all over this if I had a camera I could use.

You better hurry dude! This contest doesn't last much longer and it takes some time to get all these samples out!
Get involved in the Serious Discussion forum, answer a lot of questions new members post, or find some interesting shit online to post here.

Make sure you don't SPAM the forums with useless posts though. +1'S and "hi welcome to HP" posts will definitely get deleted. Make your posts thought filled and worthy of posting!

Also those that issues, if you are still having issues, please PM SS and if you don't get an answer/ confirmation/ reply back, then contact me. I will try and help you out as much as I can!

Why would you feel cheated? Why all the rage? There's no admission fee for this contest, just like there's no obligation on Social Smoke's part to answer your request if they are unable to. SS is not a corporation with over 9000 employees, they're just a few guys with a crapload of work on their hands.
